The Dragon Reborn comes

I find it difficult to listen to the song The Dragonborn Comes without thinking of The Wheel of Time these days, so I decided to rewrite the lyrics to fit Robert Jordan's epic as opposed to Skyrim: Elder Scrolls. Personally, I think it came out rather well, with the second half inspired by another set of rewritten lyrics. Sadly, I have yet to replace the Dovahzul part of the song with something written in the Old Tongue because I fear running into spoilers...but mayhaps I shall after Tarmon Gai'don.

Our hero, our hero claims a shepherd's heart
I tell you, I tell you, the Dragon Reborn comes
With a soul wielding the Power of ancient Aes Sedai

Twice and twice, he shall be marked, 
Twice to live and twice to die
It's an end to the evil of the Creator's foe
Beware, beware, the
Dragon Reborn comes
For the Shadow doth rise, and his legend yet grows
You'll know, you'll know the
Dragon Reborn comes.
With the soul of the Dragon and the might of the sword
When the Forsaken are loose and the seals are no more
He will save the world yet break peoples and land
By the Wheel of Time, here he stands
By the countless of evils our hero has slain
The Shepherd of the Night shall know his bane.
